The answer to this query is probably "no", but I thought I'd check it out:

My wife's PC suffered a complete internal C:\ SSD crash, and Lenovo support said the drive is no good, so they are sending out a new one.

Although they concluded this was a hardware failure, I'd still like to fix some files before restoring the Acronis backup image.  E.g., I'd like to edit some backup files.  Is this possible?

Hello Lester!

Yeah you can't. I guess you could restore to a spare disk, do your edit work and backup that disk again. When the replacement arrives use this "edited" backup.

What files do you need to change, that can't wait until after restore though?
